3 Myths About Waxing You Need To Stop Believing
The idea of applying wax on your skin and then yanking it out to get rid of unwanted hair might sound daunting and even painful, but it’s actually no big deal. Let us help you get the facts right, allay any fears you may have and send you on the road to silky smooth skin (because it’s going to be worth it)!
Myth: It pulls the skin and causes wrinkles
Fact: When wax is pulled off, your skin should be firmly held taut for effective hair removal, and not involve any pulling or stretching. Beeswax treatments glides smoothly onto your skin and shrink-wraps around the hair as it cools down, further minimising any tugging on the skin and quickening the process.
Myth: I can’t wax if I have sensitive skin
Fact: You can wax, but choose a treatment suitable for sensitive skin, such as one that uses beeswax as its key component. Beeswax is popular as a skin-conditioning agent with moisturising properties, so you will walk out with silky smooth skin after!
Myth: It’s excruciatingly painful
Fact: We’re not going to lie; yes, it can be painful especially if you’re a first-timer or getting hair removed above the lip and at the bikini line. However, some women feel that it is more comfortable than tweezing or threading. Give arm or leg waxing a go if it’s your first time.
